The weather was very bad on the day for the meet at one of the most popular
orienteering areas in Chicago. Heavy rain fell continuously from leaden
gray skies, and flooding was prominent. Neverthless 280 orienteerers showed
up to try Ury Backiev's good courses.
Thanks to the Poluektov and Pekour families who stuck it out to the end;
they really helped to make that meet happen.
